All the romance of the Scottish Highlands is expertly captured in this authentic targe.
Originally used for battle and now mainly for decoration, this rugged shield is made of a dense hardwood and expertly covered with soft leather.
The Scottish Targe used by the highlanders as a defence against both arrows and hand weapons was light and manoeuvrable, often concealing a left-hand held dirk.
This targe has an historical design using both brass fittings and tacks which have been added for additional beauty.
Sturdily built for re-enactment, and with dual heavy duty leather straps on the back to give a firm arm and hand hold.
